For sale I have a set of Fox Float 80 RL with lots of damage to the left stanchion. It is not repairable and will need either a replacement top end, or just be used for spares. Lock out and adjustments work fine.

No idea. They were on a stumpy that I got off ebay. Noticed this after 2 rides. Thought it was a popped seal, wiped the oil off and found this. So they were replaced and are now gathering dust so need to go.

Are these beyond an epoxy resin repair?

Regards

I am not really sure, someone could possibly repair them but its way out of my capabilities. The grooves are pretty deep, and sit right on the seal when the forks are extended.

Normal wear on badly maintained Fox forks Mark. The anodising on the stanchions of some Fox Forks is a little Ummm Crap and wears very easily. Which then leads to this and knackered bushings and seals. New crown, stanchions, bushings and seals and they'll be back to normal. Might be pricey though.

Bargain tastic forks though for the spares.

I'd love them for the OH's bike but maybe a little short and I can't afford just yet :(
